‘The Red Shoes is a tale of obsession, possession and one girl’s dream to be the greatest dancer in the world. Victoria Page lives to dance but her ambitions become a battleground between the two men who inspire her passion’.
New Adventures is delighted to announce that Matthew Bourne’s ‘The Red Shoes’ will return in 2019.
The two-time Olivier-Award winning adaptation of the legendary film dazzled audiences across the UK and USA during its sell-out tour in 2016/17.
Now, it’s back for a national tour, which will begin on Monday 18th November at Theatre Royal Plymouth, running until Saturday 23rd November, before visiting The Lowry, Salford, from Tuesday 26th November to Saturday 30th November, ahead of a seven-week Christmas season at Sadler’s Wells, London, from Tuesday 3rd December to Sunday 19th January 2020.
Set to the achingly romantic music of golden-age Hollywood composer Bernard Herrmann, ‘The Red Shoes’ features orchestrations by Terry Davies – played by the New Adventures Orchestra – lighting by Paule Constable, sound by Paul Groothius and projection by Duncan McLean.
Further tour dates for 2020 and casting will be announced shortly.
‘An intoxicating drama where life imitates art with fateful consequences; The Red Shoes will dazzle your senses and break your heart’.
